Since you can repro this problem easily, that makes it possible to troubleshoot in a relatively painless way. The next time that Sony Vegas (or whatever other app) gets into this standard "not responding" state, try doing this:
- Bring up Task Manager (ctrl+shift+esc)
- On the Applications tab, find the app in question. It's status will presumably be listed as "not responding".
- Rightclick the app, "Create dump file".
A few seconds later, you should see a message saying that a memory dump of the process was created in a specific location. If you can zip up that dump first and then upload it somewhere, I'll gladly take a look. It's stuck and waiting for something - the question is what?
